FireSmart Community Workshops

The Provincial Fuel Management Working Group, in coordination with Partners in Protection, is planning six FireSmart Canada workshops to assist local governments and First Nations in BC to participate in FireSmart Canada's Community Recognition Program.

These free, two-day workshops will empower participants to be local FireSmart Representatives by providing valuable understanding of wildland-urban interface wildfire threats and the skills and tools needed to protect their communities. A presentation on the Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative will be included to inform participants on how their community can benefit from this grant program.

Six FireSmart Community Workshops will be offered throughout BC over the next 18 months, one in each provincial Fire Centre, with dates and locations to be announced.
